1970 Triumph Bonneville T120R Jason Aker of Gas Monkey Garage build for Charity Featured in an upcoming season finale episode of Fast N Loud Pristine Astral red paint job, same color combination as Steve McQueen's 1970 Bonneville Restoration of well preserved stored original example MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to present this handsome and rarely seen 1970 Triumph Bonneville T120R motorcycle, a true classic British enthusiast's bike that has been in storage for a number of years! This motorcycle was part of an inner company three bike "build off" for charity. The company is Gas Monkey Garage, the builder of this Triumph is Jason Aker, the shop foreman at the garage. The winner of the competition will be determined by which builder's bike brings the most money at auction...and will air in the season finale episode of Fast N Loud. The Bonneville T120 was designer Edward Turner's last production design at Triumph. The new motorcycle was conceived and developed so quickly that it was not included in the 1959 Triumph catalogue. Launched in 1959 by Triumph as "The Best Motorcycle in the World", in 1968, the Bonneville T120R was aimed mainly at the lucrative US market where enthusiasts were demanding extra performance. Finished in dramatic Astral red and silver color scheme (the same color combo as Steve McQueen's 1970 Bonnie!), the paint condition is excellent and shows extremely well having been applied by a professional automotive restorer. Both the front and rear fenders are also finished in the same red and silver as the tank giving a very classy and consistent look. Chrome pieces also show extremely well completing the iconic 60's era look. The black seat is large and subtle with enough room for one or two to ride comfortably, the seat looks great with no major signs of wear visible. Paint and frame are exceptional with no visible evidence of repair or damage that we could find. This recently built Triumph features a strong 650cc engine that has be ridden sparingly, all the bike's mechanicals have been sorted, a new set of original equipment AMAL carburetors were added at time of restoration and perform as they should. This extremely good looking and one of a kind Bonneville will delight even the most discerning British motorcycle collector or enthusiast. This Bonnie is one of three bikes competing in this contest and represents a unique opportunity to own a featured subject on a successful TV series... and possibly the potential winner of the competition! GET OUT AND DRIVE!!!...er, RIDE!!! Current mileage on the odometer shows 681, it is sold as is and is mileage exempt. The motorcycle is being sold on a clean & clear title.
